Re: Tape stuck in VCR
First locate the load and unload motor, it is the one with the rubber
drive band. release the drive band and rotate the gear to raise and
pull the carriage back into position. This should remove your cassette, and put the carriage back into position. Regards, Eagle

might have to remove bottom of vcr and manually move the drive motor by the belt or the pully. if the bottom doesn't come off, you'll have to remove the top. usually screws on the side bottoms and one in the back. you can reach the motor from there.
It sounds like the tape is jammed in the vcr, remove the top cover of the machine this will expose the tape. If the tape is spewed in the mechanical section and around the video head, get a pair of scissors and start cutting the tape and carefully remove all tape particles, when all tape debris has been removed, plug in vcr turn on and eject. If the tape looks good, you may have a loading basket problem, bad idler ***. or broken drive belt. "Lets hope for the best"
The reason your tape wont eject is either because, it is stuck or the tape run loose inside of it.
To remove the tape, unplug the VCR, then unscrew it open, you will have direct access to the tape, so try to plug it back and press eject, when it gets stuck, apply a little force in pushing the tape up, to the height where it is to pass out, and it will eject your tape.
If you are not familiar with such activities, i will advice you get a repairman to get this done for you, in order for you not to damage any other part inside the VCR.
when this happens to me, i disconnect the vcr and remove the screws to the top cover. i remove the cover and carefully remove the tape, being careful not to touch any of the parts of the vcr. but please make sure the vcr is un plugged.
If the tape is really stuck, your only resort will be to unscrew the cover off the unit and get to the assembly where the tape heads are. You can just simply pull the tape out (carefully). Some of the tape might still be spooled on the capstans or pinch rollers.
Yes with care.
Simply remove the cover and with care unwrap the tape.
If you must break the tape - but make sure all residual tape is cleanly removed.
Re assemble and put a tape head cleaner through- following the instructions.
